The AFL have created a new coach accreditation scheme through the CoachAFL membership. The AFL has recently contacted all coaches on the national coaching database via email regarding the changes.
The key changes include:
*Please see attached CoachAFL Induction document for full details.
Action for all clubs:
Regulation 29 – Coach Accreditation
All coaches of Affiliated League Clubs are required to obtain Foundation Coaching Membership prior to coaching at any level.
If a coach continues to coach without having obtained the necessary accreditation, a team which is coached by the unaccredited coach will lose all match points for matches won by the team whilst the unaccredited coach continues to coach. In the event of no match points being received by that team, the Affiliated League in which the team plays may impose an appropriate penalty.
South Australia is the only State that allows coaches to gain accreditation after they commence coaching. This change will mean all coaches have had some training and education prior to commencing their coaching career.
